Bill Rossi, 

Chief Operating Officer

Bill Rossi serves as the Chief Operating Officer for Mekky Media Relations and has been in the role for over two years. Currently, he is also an employee of Chicago-based Earles Architects and Associates (EAA), CFO and part- owner of SEAATS, its commercial furnishings company, part-owner of Epic Gourmet Popcorn, CFO for It’s Just Lunch (the largest traditional matchmaking service in the world), and Open Roads Academy (LA-based non-profit). 


Some of the many capabilities that he brings to his various roles and clients is his ability to evaluate operational needs, implement growth-oriented organizational changes, minimize business and financial risks, position businesses for long-term growth, understand complex financial and operational issues, balance the need for cost efficiency with the desire to innovate, bootstrap companies from scratch and guide them to profitability, support financial and operational accounting, and offer strategic marketing services.


Bill has a Masters Degree in Marketing from DePaul University that eventually paved him to the operations side of businesses and eventually into many C-Level positions. 


Outside of work he likes to spend time with his partner John and their two identical twin girls who all reside in NW Indiana. 


Bill is a big believer in that the only way you can live a “normal” life is if you figure out who you are at your core and honor it, this is something he has learned to live by.
